With hours left for Greece to pay €1.6 billion to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), someone has started a crowdfunding campaign to help the country pay of its debts.

29-year old Thom Feeney from Yorkshire launched the campaign on Indiegogo as what he describes as a "real attempt to do something".

At the time of writing, Thom had raised more than €141,000 from just over 9,000 backers in two days.

There are rumours that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras wants to get in touch with Thom.

The deadline for Greece to make the €1.6bn repayment to the IMF is at 22:00 GMT today (Tuesday). Failure to make the payment is likely to result in Greece defaulting on its debt and leaving the eurozone.

"I can understand why people might take it as a joke, but Crowdfunding can really help because it's just a case of getting on and doing it. I was fed up of the Greek crisis going round in circles, while politicians are dithering, this is affecting real people. While all the posturing is going on, then it's easy for the politicians to forget that. I just thought, sod it, I'll have a crack," Thom said on the campaign page.

So what do you get for contributing, besides a positive feeling that follows a good deed? A contribution of €3 will get you a post card of Alexis Tsipras, while a donation of €5,000 will see you and a friend jetting off to Greece for a holiday.

Thom initially offered a Greek island to anyone that donated the full €1.6bn, assuming the Greek government would be happy to exchange a small island for its economic future. However, he was forced to take down the offer because the Greek government had not agreed to it.
